TV to See: The Venture Bros.
After a hiatus of year and a half, the decidedly-not-for-kids animated series “The Venture Bros.” has returned for a third season on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim lineup. Fans are eagerly tuning in for more adventures of the inept superscientist Dr. Venture, his dimwitted, mystery-loving sons Hank and Dean, their twitchingly violent bodyguard, Brock Sampson, and the pathetic array of supervillains who seek to destroy them.
“Venture Bros.” cocreator, director, writer and the voice of several characters (including Hank Venture and The Monarch), Jackson Publick (né Christopher McCulloch) seems always ready to talk about the series. A 2007 interview with Reason magazine explores many of the pop culture references that the cartoon so lovingly, savagely lampoons, while a May 2008 talk with The Onion’s A.V. Club offers insight into Season Three.
